LaCantina’s most energy efficient range complies with new stringent energy codes and is available in their folding, multislide and swing systems for a perfect match.

The Talk

By Emily Kay Thompson

The entire team at NGA\WDDA headquarters has been gearing up for GlassBuild America and Window & Door Dealer Days literally all year. And, in actuality, this event has been many years in the making. The Dream Showroom, Express Learning topics, the Keynote Breakfast—they’ve all been ideas that have been incubating for quite some time now. So you can only imagine what the energy is like now that the day is finally here. Welcome to Atlanta!

What we do in each issue of the magazine plays out somehow at the show. We take ideas from print and web and find ways to animate them on the show floor. You can catch a handful of our ace columnists on the Express Learning stage; the products you read about are available to touch and see; and the companies and people you’ve connected with via phone and email will be available for face-to-face conversations.

I’ll be spending much of my time here in The Dream Showroom. The purpose of it—and the entire Window & Door Dealer Days event, for that matter—is to provide window and door dealers the same opportunities that we’ve provided to manufacturers for years through GlassBuild America. That is: a place to go to get inspired, meet your contacts in person, create new relationships and investigate new avenues for business.

I hope to see you here.
